A dam is already pretty heavy, so I imagine a double dam will keep you firmly on the ground. Great fun pictures, rgs.

Interesting to see the three together. One with a delicate sand patina, one green and one brown. There's a lesson on when (not) to clean there.

I agree Sir. The first two were bought from auction houses and last one from an FB eller/collector. I usually prefer to keep coins in as is what is condition unless it warrants an oil bath. 👍😊
